Percent Problems – Percent Increase or Decrease

Percent Increase or Decrease Problems

For FREE access to this lesson, select your course from the categories below.

Students learn to find the percent increase or percent decrease between two numbers, using the following formula: amount of change/ original number. For example, to find the percent decrease if the price changes from $60 to $39, since the amount of change is $21, and the original number is $60, the percent decrease is $21/$60, which simplifies to 0.35. And remember that the answer is a percent, so move the decimal point two places to the right, to get 35%. So if the price changes from $60 to $39, the percent decrease is 35%.
